[qanda]This thread is about the LG GGC-H20L. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello,
I am having a very difficult problem with my new LG GGC-h20L blu-ray etc. drive. I put it in my machine, and for 1 day it worked perfectly. Then, it quit recognizing dvd, blu-ray and hd-dvd discs. After reading the other threads about this drive, it seems it does not play nice with some SATA chipsets. I am running an AMD 690G (asus m2-vm board).
To try and address that problem I purchased a SYBA SD-SATA-4P PCI SATA Controller Card (Silicon Image 3114 chipset), flashed it to the IDE bios (shows as SATALink in device manager) and installed the LG drive. Still the same issue, can read CDs but not other optical media.
The drive can read CDs after a while, but no dvds, blu-ray or hd-dvd. Any thoughts, or is it just a bad drive?
